Hey guys im having trouble making up my mind on a decision I have to make.

and I thought why not get the opinions of fellow cinematographers.

to cut it short which would you rather choose

A) 5d Mark II with 24-70Lseries lense: $3,200-$3,500

B ) 5d mark III with 24-70Lseries lense: 5,000

my obvious conflict is the money, is it really worth it?

thanks guys:)

This is kind of a silly question because every person answering will have their own reasons why they choose what they choose. Just do what's right for you.

The MK3 is a better bang for the buck, you get much better ISO performance and although the image capture is just another megapixel, it has some neat improvements. Getting a mk2 even with a price drop right now would be ridiculous.
